It has been one of THOSE weeks here in not so sunny Portsoy. every time I sat down to make a card or write on my blog, something cropped up. The week didn’t end much better than it started really as I spent a very wet morning in Keith yesterday watching my youngest play football. All the boys played well but the poor kids were soaked by the time they were done.
On to a better note, I decided to enter the challenge over on the Crafters Companion challenge blog for the first time. I love my Humphrey’s corner CD’s and stamps as I collect elephants, but more importantly I can see my kids when they were younger in most of the artwork. The challenge calls for a colour scheme of green and pink which was a departure from my normal Christmas card colours, however, I must say that I am really pleased with the results.
I used watercolour card to stamp the image and coloured it with whisper pens and inked around the edge with distress ink.
The background papers came from the Humphrey’s Corner Christmas CD and the shapes were cut using my dies and my trusty wizard machine (soon to be used along side my Grand Calibur which will hopefully arrive today, yipee!!)
I added some ribbon and gems to match the purple shoes and mittens in the picture. I had to colour the gems with copics as I only had clear ones.
The silver shimmer card was some I had in my stash but I have no idea where it came from lol.
